BELOW - An 8000Mcd 3mm LED provides the blue 'phaser beam' for
this working prop-replica.
LEFT - I replaced the kit's power readout with a more detailed one
that I produced in Photoshop.  The thin metal foil aspirator grid
permits better sound transfer than the kit's original heavy cast metal
grid part and looks much better, too.

SUBJECT:   STAR TREK-III THE SEARCH FOR SPOCK - COMMUNICATOR
KIT MAKER:  RODDENBERRY                                           SCALE:    1:1                                                        
SPECIAL  FEATURES:  Fine photo-etched brass flip-up antenna. Accurate interior details.  Hollow for easy installation of
electronics.
ADDED:  There are no commercial electronics for this kit, so I improvised my own chirp sound effect and flashing LED
indicator lights.
This full-scale hero grade prop-replic makes a perfect
companion piece to my Richard Coyle ST-III Phaser.

The only 'flaw' in the Roddenberry kit is that the center
plate that extends around between the upper & lower
body halves is made of resin when it should / could
have been made of aluminum.

This kit has been out of production for quite some
time now.
When the antenna is flipped open, the communicator 'chirps' &
the indicators inside flash.
NOTE July 2017 - This cast resin & metal kit from Roddenberry.com has been out of production for several years now.  The kit
is so accurate & well designed that it's still one of my favorite prop-replicas.
